Well, no time to blog these days, because during the daylight hours I’m either on the trail riding my bike, dirty hands deep in the dirt, or busy working my day job making trails, managing a community garden, making maps and all that good stuff. And in the evenings if there’s time and I’m not too exhausted, I’ll sneak up to my studio for an hour or 2 and work away at projects.
I haven’t shared any garden pictures, so that’s first:
Here’s my veggie garden. For the last 2 years I’ve been using a technique called Square Foot Gardening. It seems to fit well with my rather small garden. We certainly get enough veggies from it! Especially with the veggies we get from our CSA at Green Meadows Farm in Hamilton. This year I planted: potatoes, tomatoes (5 varieties), peppers, cucumbers, basil, thyme, eggplant, onions, chives, cilantro. Looks so pretty and tame right now.
This is what it ended up looking like last year, and that was with a terrible growing season:
Not too bad actually!
And I’ll upload pics from the perennial gardens once I download them from our new camera! Heart wide angle lens!
We went to Maine for Memorial Day weekend and had a great time with my folks, and also had a great hike in my favorite Notch – Evans Notch. Evans Notch is nestled right in between Maine and New Hampshire. It’s not off the main drag so it’s not as busy as the White’s but just as spectacular, if not more so. Here are some highlights:
That’s the trail we came down. It was a lot of fun.
So for projects, I’ve been keeping busy. Still working on my wonky log cabin quilt – I just need to put the final outside border on and then quilt and bind it. Shouldn’t take long but it’s on hold. Here’s it almost to the point it is right now, I do love it:
And my friend is having a baby any day – she’s naming her Phoebe, so couldn’t resist making her a “Tweet Tweet” crib quilt:
Lots of other stuff going on, so more to come SOON! Enjoy the day.
